Based on the memoir of the curmudgeonly, cat-loving New York writer Lee Israel. When demand for her trademark biographies of famous women dries up, she finds a lucrative alternative in turning out literary forgeries. Her partner in crime is Jack Hock, one of the few friends she has not alienated by her cantankerous behaviour. But her newfound wealth arouses the suspicion of the FBI. Starring Melissa McCarthy and Richard E Grant, both Oscar-nominated for Best Actress/Actor.
“Can You Ever Forgive Me?is at once a low-stakes crime drama, a buddy comedy, a period piece and a loving tribute to a woman who at this point in her life and career did not feel loved. . . It comes from a place of understanding and love that few other biopics do, and it makes this difficult character a joy to meet.” rogerebert.com
“An inspired McCarthy uses her gift for sardonic humor to make Israel’s misanthropy acidly entertaining, while retaining just enough vulnerability to keep the character’s predicament sympathetic.” Austin Chronicle
“McCarthy’s performance here is a true tour de force.”The Upcoming
